Established since 1956 Epilepsy New Zealand has grown from one Branch to 13. The first ‘Epilepsy Week’ was held in 1971 and in 1977 the Association launched its emphasis on field-work. Epilepsy New Zealand continues to develop it services to meet the demands of its clients and members. As a result, individuals, friends and family can feel more confident that they will not be considered disadvantaged by having epilepsy.
